  • Polestar high-performance electrified coupe concept

    Polestar is being blunt with the latest teaser for its upcoming electrified performance coupe. In the new video, the former Volvo in-house tuning division explains its ethos and says, "we [will] reveal a car that we would want to drive ourselves. Because when you build something for yourself, only the best is good enough." The video doesn't show any new images of the Polestar coupe but merely proclaims what the electrified coupe won't do. Among the proclamations, Polestar says: "no overpromising, no compromises, no big data, no millennial strategy," and, most humorous of all, "no bullshit."...

    Living with the 2017 Honda Civic Si: the good and the bad

    The latest Honda Civic is also the best Honda Civic. That's an easy statement to make, but it's not quite as simple when you add the “Si” designation on the end. Because despite a raft of bad Civics for the current model to overshadow, the reality is that the Si range has been a much...

  • 2018 Lexus LC 500
    10 things you need to know about the 2018 Lexus LC 500

    These days, Lexus doesn't do boring. It's all about outrageous styling, big power, and luxurious interiors. The new 2018 Lexus LC 500 has all of the above. No, I'm not high.

    Jay Leno samples a sublime 1951 Ford Coupe

    A 1951 Ford is a relatively plain car. For this particular model year, the Blue Oval filled its model lineup with a Tudor Sedan, the Victoria hardtop, a Country Squire wagon, and the Crestliner sport sedan. Engine choices fell between a 3.7-liter inline-6 and a 3.9-liter flathead V-8. These were...

  • Bentley Mulsanne coupe by Mcchip-DKR
    German firm building the Bentley Mulsanne coupe of your dreams

    Bentley itself hasn't built a Mulsanne coupe—or should that be Brooklands—but that hasn't stopped others from dreaming. More importantly, one company is executing on the dream. German tuner Mcchip-DKR is currently taking a standard issue Bentley Mulsanne sedan and chopping off the rear...

  • 2017 Lamborghini Aventador S
    2017 Lamborghini Aventador S: the right car for a racetrack

    A little evolution now and then is a good thing. That distorted maxim holds true for the Lamborghini Aventador. Originally released as a 2012 model, Lambo’s most-expensive supercar boasted loads of technology derived from Formula One, but it had some issues. It was heavy, it understeered on a...

  • Lexus LFA - RM Sotheby's photos by Tim Scott

    Like the heralded Toyota 2000GT, the Lexus LFA is rare and fast -- and just starting to accelerate in the collector car marketplace Every once in a while, sheer brilliance comes from an unexpected place. Take, for example, Richard Branson. On paper, he is a dyslexic who, when leaving school, without a college degree, was told he would either end up in prison or as a millionaire. Well, we all know how that ended up. Flash back to the year 2000. The internet industry was about to implode, and Toyota announced the year before that it was entering Formula One competition. Toyota also had also...

  • Borgward Isabella concept, 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show
    Borgward Isabella concept brings a storied name back from the past

    Borgward emerged in the early to mid-1900s as an underdog German automaker that would, after some great successes, fold in the early 1960s. However, the storied brand was reincarnated in 2008 and the brand showed a new production model, the BX7 SUV, in 2015. Now, Borgward is looking to the future...

  • 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe

    Large, luxurious coupes and convertibles aren’t big sellers, though the vehicles often play the important role of brand halos, or “dream cars” as Mercedes-Benz refers to them. The latest from the Three-Pointed Star are the 2018 S-Class Coupe and Cabriolet. Mercedes’s S-Class sedan was just updated for 2018 with some visual tweaks to the exterior and cabin, plus a revised powertrain lineup. Those same changes have since been implemented on the two-door S-Class models. The updated range will be presented next week at the 2017 Frankfurt auto show but we already have the...

  • Jay Leno drives his 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SE Coupe
    Jay Leno takes a classic Mercedes-Benz coupe out for a spin

    A classic Mercedes-Benz is a wonderful machine. The cars tend to be rock solid, and they last forever when maintained properly. Jay Leno has one in his collection, and it recently came off a fairly extensive restoration. Leno's car is a 1971 Mercedes 280 SE 3.5 Coupe, and it's a shining example of...

  • 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody first drive
    2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody first drive review: big looks, incremental improvements

    The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is very, very fast. The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is even faster. So naturally, rather than calling it a job very well done, Dodge is introducing a middle child, blending the looks of the Demon with the standard Hellcat's powertrain and attaching much larger...

  • Hyundai Vision G (HCD-16) concept

    Genesis, like most major players in the luxury segment, has opted for the sensible albeit boring alphanumeric naming practice popularized by the German marques. With automakers offering so many models these days, such a naming practice makes it possible for customers to easily and quickly identify where in the product hierarchy a particular vehicle sits. Genesis uses the letter “G” plus a number to denote its sedans, with the higher the number the higher the vehicle’s positioning. At the top of the current range is a G90. Below it sits a G80 and soon a G70 will arrive...

    2018 Audi RS 5 first drive review: green with mean

    Like all animals, humans are subject to various temptations. A salad is healthier than a burger and fries, but the whiff you get within a block of an old-fashioned burger joint is irresistible. Similarly, you shouldn’t buy another project car, but when will you find another like it?...
